Subject: 75th Anniversary of Repeal Day

So I get out three hours early on Friday. It’s our holiday party instead of a party.”


“Err…what was that?”


Instead of a party, they’re just letting us go three hours early.”


You could get started drinking early for Repeal Day.”


Maybe. It’s the 75th anniversary this year right?”

I believe so. It really is a great holiday, you’ve got American History, drinking..it appeals to everyone!”


Well, everyone except prohibitionists.”


Those people don't exist anymore. Do they? DO THEY?!”

Sure. There are still plenty of dry counties out there. The place where they make Jack Daniels

for one. Plenty of people still seem to think alcohol is a bad thing and a sin or something.”


Silly (other) Americans!”


I think I'll hit McSorley's..despite it not being historically friendly towards women.”


Straight from the website, 'Established in 1854 – McSorley's can boast of being New York City's oldest continuously operated saloon.' It survived prohibition, and I think that's deserves a couple of half-pints of dark in it's honor. I'll meet you there after work.”


Sweet!”


I have to agree, this is the best drinking holiday of them all. There's too much green on St. Patrick's Day, and it's too Irish, not American. The night before Thanksgiving is nice, but no

one wants to be hungover and have to cook a turkey. New Years Eve is a great day too though.”


I'd say New Years is more of a family holiday, a celebration of new beginnings, new chances, and the Twilight Zone.”


Greatest drinking holiday or not, I'm going to make an effort on Friday.”


Shouldn't be too hard at a great place like that. Hmm..do I want light first, or dark?”


We'll get both and split them.”


Smart.”
